How many American fighters are needed to destroy one Russian S-400 air defense system

Chinese media released material on the capabilities of the Americans against the air defense system

Russia, namely against the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system.

The Chinese author noted that anti-aircraft missilethe S-400 Triumph complexes are the world's leading ones in terms of air defense efficiency. This system is the most dangerous for enemy aircraft and drones that are "in the radar line of sight" of the complex. Therefore, such a POV can be overcome by using means for attacks from afar or with the massive use of combat aircraft.

The expert writes that to overcome one S-400 air defense system, the Americans need at least 9-10 of their new generation F-35 fighters with electronic warfare units and long-range anti-radar missiles.

At the same time, the S-400 in Russia does not operate alone, as the author notes. If there is a real battle between the American F-35 and the Russian S-400 air defense systems, then both sides will suffer serious losses.
